As semantic technologies prove their value with targeted applications, there are increasing opportunities
to consider their application in social contexts for knowledge, learning, and human development.
Semantic Web and Knowledge Management has been accepted as a critical enabler aiming to in
crease knowledge-related performance by better use of intellectual assets, in addition to which many
governments are forced to increasingly deal with knowledge services that form larger parts of the global
economy and society.
Speech acts as minimal unit of discourse analysis have been the focus of a large body of research as they do not only represent language form but also reflect cultural values of the people who perform them. Like most other speech acts, the realization of the speech act of criticizing is influenced by a number of social and situational factors, the perception of which might vary greatly across cultures. In addition, cultures may also differ in their common topics and frequency of criticism their people make in everyday life. ...
During the emergence of sociology as an academic discipline the questions
about the origins, status and functions of constitutions were widely
posed. Indeed, for both thematic and methodological reasons, the analysis
of constitutions was a central aspect of early sociology. Sociology
developed, however ambiguously, as a critical intellectual response to the
theories and achievements of the Enlightenment in the eighteenth
century, the political dimension of which was centrally focused on the
theory and practice of constitutional rule....
It is a cause for celebration to be able to introduce this thought-provoking
book to a wider public. Each chapter is the tip of an iceberg of knowledge and
experience, perfectly replicating the sense of discovery of the original study
day that inspired the book.
The Social Perspectives Network (SPN) is a network open to anyone
who is interested in looking at mental distress in terms of people’s social
experience – how social factors may both contribute to people becoming distressed,
and play a crucial part in promoting their recovery.
It is one of the singular facts in the history of literature, that the most rootedly conservative country in Europe
should have produced the poet of the Revolution. Nowhere is the antipathy to principles and ideas so
profound, nor the addiction to moderate compromise so inveterate, nor the reluctance to advance away from
the past so unconquerable, as in England; and nowhere in England is there so settled an indisposition to regard
any thought or sentiment except in the light of an existing social order, nor so firmly passive a hostility to
generous aspirations, as in the aristocracy.

The very idea of an encyclopedia seems eminently anthropological—in at least two
different ways. In its earliest use in classical Rome the term ‘encyclopedia’ referred to the
‘circle of learning’, that broad knowledge of the world which was a necessary part of any
proper education. In its employment in post-Renaissance Europe it has come to refer
more narrowly to attempts to map out systematically all that is known about the world.
Social Networks, Social Software and Web 2.0, a phrase coined by O’Reilly Media in 2004, refers to a
perceived or proposed second generation of Internet-based services—such as social networking sites,
professional communities of practice, wikis, communication tools, and folksonomies—that emphasize
the creation of knowledge and intellectual capital, online collaboration and sharing among users. This
new emerging era poses critical challenges for the development of Interactive Learning Environment.
This essay reflects upon the relationship between the current theory of
financial intermediation and real-world practice. Our critical analysis of this
theory leads to several building blocks of a new theory of financial
Current financial intermediation theory builds on the notion that
intermediaries serve to reduce transaction costs and informational
asymmetries. As developments in information technology, deregulation,
deepening of financial markets, etc.
As English has been an international language, the ability to present a topic is clearly
valuable at every stage of students’ lives. Whatever the subjects they study, presentation
will bring them success in English speaking classes, academic work, job interviews and
their future work life – it is the most transferable of all their skills, and a critical part of
their professional development. Presentation is also an important part in an English
speaking class at high school, in which students are required to present their ideas in a
short and simple way....
I gave them as good a brain dump as I could on each topic. They sat
raptly and asked intelligent follow-up questions.
These were smart kids, mind you: usually top computer science graduates
and plenty of experienced programmers. But for all their coding
skills, they didn’t really know the first thing about making a business
Which is OK. They’ll learn. It’s not that hard.
The history of development intervention is marked by multiple failures at dialogue
between analysts and practitioners; an impasse caused in part by the failure to recon-
cile disparate professional languages. In Kenya, where critical thought for this book
was generated, a cause célèbre in livestock intensification has been the ill-fated
Maasai Project of the 1960s and 1970s. The wider East Africa region too is known
for its repeated failures to sustain projects in agricultural extension, water manage-
ment, and drought preparedness.
Literature: When reading literature, students must demonstrate their capacity to pay special attention to
the choices authors make about words and structures. Many literary effects depend on the order in which
events unfold and the specific details used to describe characters and actions. Since these same
strategies—order and use of detail—are equally critical in understanding the most demanding
informational texts, reading literature helps students comprehend what they read in science, history and
